When I first got my Kindle, I downloaded a sample of Daniel Silva's book "The English Assassin" and I liked it so muh that I bought the book. It was a really good read -- and I'm not usually much of a fan of spy novels.

After I read that book, I decided to read the whole series of Gabriel Allon books (that's the protagonist's name. he's an art restorer as well as a spy). The first book, "The Kill Artist" was not available for Kindle, so I dropped a note to Mr. Silva's website and asked about it. A rep of his responded, and told me that all of Mr. Silva's books should be available for Kindle by the end of the year. And yesterday, I found that "The Kill Artist" is finally out there! So I downloaded it ($6.99), and I will save it to take on vacation with me in Feb.

These books are really good, so even if you don't usually like this genre, I suggest you download a sample. His books are very educational, as well as exciting.

Well, like I said in my OP, I just discovered his books, but I'm sure I'll read all of them now that I've found them!

I also was just so impressed that I got a personal response from one of his assistants to my query about Kinde-izing "The Kill Artist." I did not expect to hear from Daniel Silva himself, because from the notes on his web site I could tell he was a very busy guy, but I half expected some form email from his publisher. Instead, I got a real reply from a real person! And that person was able to tell me that the books were all in the process of being converted to Kindle format. And he was telling the truth! :)

So now I will be making Daniel Silva even richer than he already must be, by buying every last one of his books for my Kindle.
